Next month, NCCOR will attend Nutrition 2019, held by the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), for the first time. This annual meeting will convene 3,600 of the top scientific researchers, practitioners, global and public health professionals, policy makers, advocacy leaders, media and other related professionals to discuss the latest nutrition research.
NCCOR will be holding a presentation on ASN’s Science Stage in the Hub on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 p.m, called “Towards improved measurement of individual diet behaviors and food environment exposures: Resources from the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research.” NCCOR we will provide an overview of key challenges and considerations in selecting measures of diet behaviors and food environments and demonstrate the use of the resources, the Measures Registry, User Guides and Learning Modules.
NCCOR will also host a poster presentation on its resources on Sunday, June 9 from 12:45-1:45 p.m. The poster presentation is a great opportunity to speak one on one with leading research experts on the measurement of diet-related behaviors.
We hope that both researchers and practitioners will be able to use this suite of resources to support selection of the most appropriate measures of diet behaviors and food environment exposures for a given study/evaluation. We’re also aiming to foster greater standardization of measures across studies.
Learn more! Even if you can’t make the presentations, NCCOR will be showcasing our tools at a booth in the exhibition hall. Stop by to learn more about NCCOR and the resources available for your research and evaluation projects!
